Happy Independence Day!!

I’m in a bit of a reflective mood this morning. Independence Day marks the day the US gained its freedom (officially). Freedom from what? From tyranny and British Empire rule. The fledgling 13 states of this now huge country bravely forged the way.

We are very lucky, those of us who live in America. As much bitching as I do about the government – I am thankful to be a part of this country, and want to participate to make it the best it can be!

In thinking about freedom on a daily basis, here are some thoughts of what freedoms I am celebrating today:

– Freedom from being obese
– the freedom to ride a bike for miles and miles – and not get tired
– the freedom to shop wherever I want to now.
– the freedom to do anything in public and not fear being made fun of
– the freedom of movement without it being an effort

and the freedom I feel just being good to myself and treating my body well!

What freedoms are you celebrating?

    Wow. You have no idea how nice and inspirational this blog post was. The only thing I could critique you on is that… well actually I guess it isn’t critiquing. I meant to say my freedoms I suppose:

    Freedom to let off fireworks.
    Freedom to be able to laugh.
    Ohh and the freedom to have a family.
